The poverty is real, but the love of Christ is also real and in the midst of the people here in Haiti. As hard as it is driving down the unpaved roads and seeing nothing but chaos and extreme poverty, our team has centered our hearts on why we’re here. We get the chance to serve these people, love them, and share our stories. Praise God for that.
There are some people who come to church that don’t know where their next meal is coming from. They come, they fill up their bellies, and they praise God. Amen!” Their joy in the Lord is enough. We need that kind of dependence in the United States.
That yellow bus has carried us everywhere this week. From driving us through the bumpy streets to our work site for the week to taking us here…an absolutely beautiful beach where we spent our last full day in Haiti. It’s been an incredible week filled with new friendships, joy, children to love on, and personal growth.
